51st Arizona Legislative Session Has Adjourned

As of today, April 24, 2014, the 51st Arizona Legislative Session has adjourned.  Although typically 100 days long, this year’s session went 101 days and wrapped up around 1:45am in the morning.  The big issue surrounding Child Protective Services is expected to be addressed in a Special Session. 

There were a few bills regarding homeowner associations that came up in this session; a few passed and the majority went by the wayside for this year.  An infographic regarding the Legislative process in its entirety can be viewed at: http://www.associatedasset.com/hoa-resources/legislative-updates/arizona-legislative-updates/
